Sega launches new Sega Music brand

First release is Sakura Wars Complete Collection, out now in Japan

Sega has launched its own music brand and begun publishing soundtracks in its home market of Japan.

A press release shared by Famitsu announces the debut of Sega Music, which will now be the umbrella brand for all game music releases from the publisher.

Sega will work with various music labels on each release, using the new branding to signify the company's involvement.

The first release is the Sakura Wars Complete Collection, or New Sakura Taisen Kayo Complete Collection as it's known in Japan.

The album is based on the latest Sakura Wars title for PS4, and was released in collaboration with Wave Master Entertainment earlier this week.

There were no specific details on future releases, but Sega promised a variety of titles going forward.

An interesting note about the new logo (pictured below) is the blue waveform image is a direct representation of the familiar "Sega" chant when its classic games load up.

It is unclear whether the Sega Music brand and its releases will be coming to Western markets such as the US and Europe. GamesIndustry.biz has reached out to Sega for more information.
